Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is Effective as of May 2016

Inferscience Inc., a Delaware Corporation, (“Inferscience”) recognizes that its users, customers, and customer’s clients care about their privacy, including how their personal information is collected and used, especially when personal information includes personal health information. That is why protecting any Personally Identifiable Information, or PII as defined below is of the utmost importance to Inferscience. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) describes the ways in which Inferscience collects, uses, and shares information, including PII collected while you are using our website at or any other websites that Inferscience owns, operates or controls (collectively, the “Site”), directly or indirectly through any of our authorized service providers (“Service Providers”), or provided to us by one of our customers.

To the extent that PII includes personal health information, all personal health information will be treated in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local laws. This Privacy Policy is directed solely to PII which does not include identifiable personal health information. To the extent that Inferscience may receive personal health information from its customers while performing services for such customers, such information shall be treated confidentially in accordance with any agreements with such customer, but not with less care than provided in this Privacy Policy. Please do not provide any personal health information through this Site or in communication with Inferscience.

When you provide PII at this Site, through communication with us, and through any of our Service Providers, you are consenting to the manner in which Inferscience will collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage your information, including PII, as set forth below. Inferscience respects the privacy of the individuals and this Privacy Policy describes how Inferscience uses the data it collects or receives from users of the Site, and its Customers and their clients. Using information provided to Inferscience, we are able to provide you with Clinical Decision Support service and assist you with making decisions regarding patient care.

Information, including PII, may be stored in the United States or other countries where the data protection and other laws may not be as comprehensive as those in your country. By using the Site or providing information to Inferscience, you consent to information being collected, used and transferred as set forth in this Privacy Policy, as amended from time-to-time.

Scope and Purpose

This Privacy Policy describes the practices of Inferscience, Inc. (“we,” “us,” or “Inferscience”) with regard to information about you that we obtain, either directly or indirectly through third-party vendors, through the Site and directly or indirectly through our clients and customers. This Privacy Policy does not apply to other that we operate, to information that we obtain outside of the Site (unless provided through our Customers), or websites of third parties to which we provide links. We do not control and are not responsible for the privacy practices of, or the data available on, the websites of third parties, and we urge you to evaluate the soundness of these practices for yourself.

What Information Do We Collect?

The following types of information may be collected on the Site:

  • We may collect information you provide us if you sign up for or request certain services from us on our Site. If you are interested in learning more about Inferscience and the services and products we offer, we will ask for your name, practice name and size, email address, telephone number, the EHR (vendor, type, and version) you are using and feedback on accuracy of the clinical recommendations that we provide.
  • We may collect your IP address and other data about the equipment used to visit the Site, the patterns of searching and browsing that preceded access to the Site, and the patterns of searching and browsing on the Site.

The Site does not respond to web browsers’ Do Not Track signals.

You can choose not to provide certain information, although you then may not be able to take advantage of certain site features. Inferscience generally limits access to PII about you (except as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy) to employees, agents, and employees of Service Providers who Inferscience believes reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. From time to time, Inferscience may request other PII in order to provide features, functions or services, but you will always have the choice to decide whether or not to provide the requested information. If you access the restricted access portions of the Site, you may be required to provide additional PII.

By using the Site (which resides in part on servers located in the United States), you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer, or use of any information, including PII, User Generated Content, or non-identifiable information or anonymized information, as provided in this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer, or use of such information, as provided in this Privacy Policy, please discontinue use of the Site.

Inferscience does use information, including PII and anonymous personal health information to improve the accuracy and efficiency of Inferscience’s services and algorithms to improve suggested care and treatment options. Inferscience does not rent or sell personal health information, and has taken steps to prevent third parties from using Inferscience’s systems to influence physician and care providers treatment options inappropriately. Inferscience will in limited circumstances, and at the request and with the authorization of covered entities make data available to public health authorities and IRB authorized researchers in accordance with applicable law. In addition Inferscience will not provide commercial messages (like advertisements) from third parties to physicians and health care providers using Inferscience’s systems. All entities connecting to or using Inferscience’s systems are required to abide by these rules.

If you choose to provide Inferscience with PII, we will use that information for our internal business purposes only. For example:

  • If you provide us with your email address, we may use it for our own marketing, promotional, and informational purposes, including solicitations, invitations, newsletters, awareness campaigns, and announcements, but we will not share your email address with unaffiliated third parties.


Sharing Your Information

We engage certain service providers for purposes of tracking and associating internet search and browsing behavior and to provide functionality on the Site. We enable them to use tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons, on or in conjunction with the Site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to other Sites, together with non-personally identifiable information about your purchases and interests from other online and offline sources. The use and collection of information by these service providers is governed by their respective privacy statements and thus is not covered by this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may share Site usage information with these service providers for market research purposes.

Finally, information obtained through these processes may be combined with PII to improve Inferscience’s offerings and services. Maintaining the privacy and security of information maintained, transmitted, or otherwise made available is vitally important to us. Inferscience has implemented appropriate privacy safeguards to prevent unlawful use or disclosure of PII and especially of personal health information. Inferscience has implemented administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the electronic personal health information that it receives, maintains, or transmits.

Key Terms

  • a. TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES: Tracking technologies include technologies such as “cookies” and “web beacons,” which are used to analyze trends, administer the Site, and help us provide you with a more personalized experience and improve our services. Cookies are small amounts of text files that are sent from a website to your computer’s browser when you visit the site. These cookies are then stored in files within your computer’s browser. Websites can access only the cookies that they have stored on your computer. For every future time you access a website, your browser sends the cookie back to the server, which notifies the website of the user’s previous activities on the website. Thus, cookies serve several useful purposes, like letting you navigate between pages more efficiently, saving your preferences, and enhancing your user experience with the website. Web beacons (also called transparent GIFs, web bugs, pixels, or action tags) are strings of code that deliver a tiny graphic image on a web page or in an email which is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website or sending the email. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page on which the web beacon is placed. In general, any file served as part of a web page can act as a web beacon.
  • b. INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) ADDRESS: A numerical label separated by periods that identifies every device (e.g., computer, printer) that participates in a network. IP addresses allow these devices to communicate with one another and transmit relevant information.
  • c. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (PII): For purposes of this Privacy Policy, PII includes: first and last name; physical mailing address including street name and city/town; email; telephone number; or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual.
